The Joys of Writing: The influence of Personal Heroes, Humble Beginnings, and Gratitude on the Depressed Brain… PART 1


Hello Fellow Readers! On my journey toward uncovering my writer's voice, I've found myself in the dungeons of self-pity more often than I'd like to admit. The 'woe is me' lamentations of others echoing more clearly around me. In my weakened state, society's 'anything goes' environment seems way too happy to back me up. Doing their … Continue reading The Joys of Writing: The influence of Personal Heroes, Humble Beginnings, and Gratitude on the Depressed Brain… PART 1

Heroes Journey…


The true heroes pull value from within. A true hero spins gold with what she's given. I didn't get here by doing what I'm told.   If I said gold and you saw green, then, true love, I'm convinced you've never seen, the smile, by my hand reflecting from a strangers face, that's how we win … Continue reading Heroes Journey…

Running Thoughts Are Better Left Written Down


I had a thought while running today that really stuck with me. I think it stuck with me because it was the perfect example of why I try not to say things out loud until I've properly thought them through. When words leave our lips too soon, before they are ready, they tend to leave … Continue reading Running Thoughts Are Better Left Written Down

“DO YOU FEEL IT”


An Original Short Thriller A chair creaked back and forth malevolently, through the hum of a mumbled mantra.

They seemed to smolder … Continue reading “DO YOU FEEL IT”

There are some days that I've felt so lost, sought out mindless self-indulgence regardless of the cost, but I can't stay lean if I … Continue reading I’ve Loved You Since the Day I Met You

I See You


  Sometimes it begins with a picture, sometimes with a single sound, and then before you know it, you are out adventure bound, the structure of life was never meant to be rigid, buying into the cold cut American dream just seems frigid, peddling slices of humanity one piece at a time, selling the lot for … Continue reading I See You

Meet Your Trainer!


At close to 9 lbs I came kicking and screaming into the world with not one, but two sets of the chubbiest cheeks you've ever seen. One of them went away with time while the other plagued every family, school, or friend group picture I ever took. Up until a certain age that trait is … Continue reading Meet Your Trainer!
